Replaced my starter slow crank/no start and no crank no start.
2006 Mazda 3 2.0L
*top bolt wasn’t stripped, they were just dumb and couldn’t get it to screw in*
Anyway, replaced my starter, my battery was dead so after an hour of it hooked up to jumper cables, it started. Told my buddies to drive it for a bit to charge up the battery, they didn’t. I get home from work and excited to drive my car finally, and it gave me a no crank no start.
Took my battery to AZ and they charged it up and it tested as a good battery.
Go home, put it in, car slowly cranks, but will not start.
I tried to start it a few more times, then it gave me a no crank no start, as if the battery is dead.
The starter I put in it is from an 08 m3 with the 2.0L.
